I know I'm likely to get locked and booted but I've been here more'n a few years and have seen some amazing flamewars start here over the funniest of topics. My personal fave is when I started a virtual new English Civil War when I had the temerity to suggest that...

Benny Hill was funnier to me than Mr. Bean.

Ye gads you'd think I'd insulted the Queen Mum. What's the weirdest dustup you've seen in here?

IMHO the wobble wars were some of the best threads ...though some of the raaid stuff was good as well. Who was it that Tagert used to get into it with? Some of those were really good!

I once suggested that the Spitfire was quite a good airplane.... I think Goering himself turned up to flame me in that thread.

Tres amusant as the dutch say.

I think the best one was when someone forwarded a link to UBI's King Kong game and people there were arguing about King Kong fighting T-rex and who would really win if they fought.

Talking about Benny Hill (Hells I miss those shows ... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif), we've got one of these Billy Graham types floating around, down here.
His name is Benny Hinn, and his force of subservants are 'accosting' us at traffic lights inviting all to his fellowship. So this one comes up to me and burbles in his american accent..

"Who... ?" I say
"Benny Hinn" he says..
"Benny Hill ?".. I say (I'm now taking the mickey out of him)
"Benny Hinn" is the annoyed reply.
"Really.. I love his shows, I would like to see if he has any nuns on stage" I say with a grin.
" Not Hill.. it's Hinn" ..says this now, really annoyed person.

Traffic lights green and away I go... "I'll be there for sure" I shout waving.
I looked in the rear view mirror at this dumb founded figure of frustration.. I roared with laughter. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Now that the airplane conveyor belt scenario has been brought up again, I have suddenly realized that 45 minutes of my time are gone and I have a headache from thinking about it. I almost feel like I'm debating the issue again... >.<

Thanks a pantload, rnzoli.

I tried to follow that thread but it sounded so much like school mates hagglin in the dorm at 4 in the mornin' after staggerin' in "knee walkin' drunk" I just couldn't take it.

Airplane on a conveyor hands down. .50 cal vs tanks wasnt a particularly fun topic either http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Airplane on a conveyor was bad, but eventually pretty much everyone got it, except 1 guy who refused to admit he was wrong.

LOL.... 50 cals vs Tigers.... was hot.... the 190 threads were a hoot.... but do any of you remember some of the ones that happened in the old pilots lounge.... ? That caused it to get shut down.... some of the Heavy D vs James Gang ones.... the France threads..... without a doubt.... everything after that was relatively tame.

I remember someone posting pics of sowjet soldiers putting the flag on the Reichstag and calling German members fascist and such.

Benny Hill is 10 times funnier than Mr. Bean.

Even if you could take off on a conveyor belt, how would you land?

Skipping .50 cal rounds underneath a Tiger only works on pavement.

Blue planes are better than red planes.

The P-51 sucks, even though it won the war.

Hitler had advanced syphillis and would have died before 1945 was out, anyway.

The FW-190 is way overrated.

One of the "Trim on a slider = cheat"-threads for sure. RBJ had some great posts in those, as well as in some wonder-woman-view-discussions.

If you're looking for controversy, I remember a post where some guy insisted that the Tuskagee airmen didn't have any extra difficulties to overcome compared to other fliers.

Has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard online, and I've been online well over a decade.

it wasnt really a fight but the frag doll forum fiascos which followed the king kong raid were hilarious. for a short time at least.

i was never really big on the conveyor belt argument, because nobody ever told me if the conveyor belt would be on or off. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

That 2003-4 pre-Pacific Fighters release thread of WTF, Why No Burma Map??? and the prolonged argument of a prominent forum member that nothing special ever happened there (and the personal attacks that followed) is one that I remember well.
